Schwinn Pic...Anyone Know Where This Is ?

Recommended Posts

Schwinn's wife thought it was on Mt Laguna, but I don't remember any spots where there is a big rock with a fence like this ?

Maybe at the overlook just north of the Laguna store ?

Stonewall Peak? It's a guess, but I've been there

Looking at pictures of Stonewall Peak it seems to match.

That's be a helluva hike in Moto boots.

Looks to be on the north end of Idyllwild (looking north from that area). Maybe off the 243?  You can see  Banning just over his head, San Gorgornio to the right, Baldy in the distance. Cabazon is in the right side of picture with Hyw 10. Maybe Black Mountain Truck Trail?

It is indeed the Black Mountain lookout in  the San Jacinto mountains, off of the 243.  We had quite a fine ride up there with all the active members of that time period one day.  Good times.

OK, I talked to Mrs. Schwinn, she agrees it would be a great place for a memorial plaque, now just gotta talk to forest service.

Cool video of the lookout tower...you can actually join the association and be a fire watch volunteer.

 

That would be a nice escape for a couple of days
